Ron Zacapa Centenario: Guatemalan Rum From ‘The House Above The Clouds’

by Ken Gargett

Zacapa was one of the first rums ever that convinced me there was serious life in the category outside the ubiquitous Bundy. In Australia, Bundaberg Rum, “Bundy” in the Aussie vernacular, holds a massive percentage of both the dark rum category and spirits in general. However, while it makes some fine rums in the premium levels (an extraordinary 18-Year-Old some years ago was a stunner), these are rare – Bundy, as it is known to every Aussie, is very much a mixer (nothing at all wrong with that).

Indeed, most of us grew up believing “BundyandCoke” was one word. When an Aussie kid gets to the age of moving beyond a beer and dabbling with spirits, I’d wager 95 percent started with a Bundy and Coke. It is as Australian as cricket in summer, Christmas holidays at the beach, and a pie at the footy.

Zacapa was also certainly one of the very first brands to confirm that good rum is as deserving of respect and consideration as a sipping spirit.

The distillery’s full name is Ron Zacapa Centenario, but everyone calls it Zacapa. It has been named as one of the world’s Top 100 Most Valuable Luxury Brands. In 2018, it was ranked as the world’s leading ultra-premium rum and it was the first rum to be named to the International Rum Festival’s Hall of Fame. ... he-clouds/
